This young Russian born Dramatic Soprano is phenomenal. Her range is incredible with four octaves and her timbre is rich and luscious allowing her to sing a broad range of repertoire. She began to sing as a Mezzo Soprano in the beginning of her career, then successfully switched to Soprano. At the age of fifteen Anastasiya was accepted to the Rachmaninoff Music College in Russia as one of the exceptionally gifted students to study conducting. Shortly after that she was recognized by the vocal faculty to have a fantastic vocal potential and realized her voice was already very well developed. She made her operatic debut at the age of sixteen singing the title role of Orfeo in Orfeo und Euridice by Gluck. That performance was recorded with Kaliningrad Symphony Orchestra for a Baltic Radio broadcast the following year.
When Anastasiya entered Gnessin Academy of Music in Moscow she was the youngest student ever to be accepted in the studio of Professor Zara Dolukhanova, a renowned Russian mezzo soprano. During her first year at the Gnessin Academy, Anastasiya was one of the guest soloists at the Bolshoy Theatre gala concert. Soon after that, Anastasiya and her family were forced to immigrate to USA as refugees. However, her true passion for opera did not go away. While attending Manhattan School of Music she made her International Opera Debut in 2004 singing the title role of Carmen at the Belle-Ile Festival in France.
This next season she will perform the opera Masquerade in Moscow followed by the title role in Tosca with the American National Opera Company at Koch Theatre Lincoln Center.
